Le temps où Internet apparaissait comme un simple prolongement du téléphone, voire un accélérateur de la vente à distance, paraît bien lointain. Le Web devient la manufacture mondialisée des produits de contenu. Chacun d'entre nous devient-il une plate-forme, faisant valoir sa propre originalité en même temps que miroiter celle des autres ? Dans cette nouvelle industrie de la société civile numérisée, les chaînes de valeur sont remises en question : création, production, distribution et régulation. Le système marchand rencontre le système de la gratuité pour donner naissance à de nouveaux partages culturels et sociaux, et à de nouveaux modèles d'affaires. Cet ouvrage, associant professionnels et chercheurs de toutes les disciplines, analyse l'ensemble des thèmes relatifs aux défis de la cultureweb : Les réseaux sociaux nous emmènent-ils d'Hollywood à Hollyweb ? Qu'appelle-t-on contenus numériques auto-édités ? Tout Internaute est-il un créateur ? Que devient la propriété intellectuelle face à la disparition de tout support ? Les biens d'information et les créations artistiques transférés sur le Web changent-ils de nature ? Diversité et éthique sont-elles les nouvelles devises de la Toile ? Cet ouvrage s'adresse aux étudiants, spécialistes et professionnels en information-communication, économie, gestion, droit et sociologie.

Diary of a Body

From a particularly humiliating accident at scout camp, to the final stages of terminal illness, Daniel Pennac's warm, witty and heart-breaking novel shows the rise and fall of an ordinary man, told through his observations of his own body. It is with damp eyes (not to mention underpants) that our narrator begins his diary, seeking through it to come to terms with the demoralising quirks of his fleshy confines. Through the joys and horrors of puberty to the triumphs of adolescence, we grow to love him through every growth, leak and wound, as he finds himself developing muscles, falling in love, and then leaving school to join the French Resistance. Yet, as ever, this is only half the story. As years pass and hairs grey, everything he took for granted begins to turn against him. Tackling taboo topics with honesty and charm, Pennac's wit remains sharp even as everything else begins to sag. This is a hugely original story of the most relatable of unlikely love stories: a human, and the body that defines him.

Daniel Pennac has never forgotten what it was like to be a very unsatisfactory student, nor the day one of his teachers saved his life by assigning him the task of writing a novel. This was the moment Pennac realized that no-one has to be a failure for ever.In School Blues, Pennac explores the many facets of schooling: how fear makes children reject education; how children can be captivated by inventive thinking; how consumerism has altered attitudes to learning. Haunted by memories of his own turbulent time in the classroom, Pennac enacts dialogues with his teachers, his parents and his own students, and serves up much more than a bald analysis of how young people are consistently failed by a faltering system.School Blues is not only universally applicable, but it is unquestionably a work of literature in its own right, driven by subtlety, sensitivity and a passion for pedagogy, while embracing the realities of contemporary culture.

This sweeping generational novel, which spans the 20th century, begins with an old man considering a photograph of his long-dead siblings and mother. His bitterness about his family, with its absent father and far older brothers and sisters, is painful to him still. Yet this familial bitterness pales when compared with his profound irritation at the recent disappearance of the highly skilled barmistress Hayet from his local bar. She was, after all, a woman who knew how to make a fine home away from home for her patrons--even for lonely ones like Marcel. A succession of would-be barmen and hostesses descends on the Corsican bar in the hopes of taking Hayet's place, with disastrous and often hilarious results. But then Marcel's illegitimate grandson Matthieu and his streetwise best friend Libero return from the Parisian university where they had been studying philosophy and decide to have a go at running the bar themselves. Initially the lifelong friends are a great success, but as reality increasingly intrudes on their idyll, they begin to see before their very eyes that St. Augustine's observation that all empires must inevitably crumble applies as much to village bars as it did to the ancient Romans.

For her most recent work and first novel - Notre-Dame du Nil, originally published in March 2012 with Gallimard in French - Mukasonga immerses us in a school for young girls, called "Notre-Dame du Nil." The girls are sent to this high school perched on the ridge of the Nile in order to become the feminine elite of the country and to escape the dangers of the outside world. The book is a prelude to the Rwandan genocide and unfolds behind the closed doors of the school, in the interminable rainy season. Friendships, desires, hatred, political fights, incitation to racial violence, persecutions... The school soon becomes a fascinating existential microcosm of the true 1970s Rwanda.

A New York Times Book Review Notable Book, NPR Great Reads, and Onion A.V. Club Best Book of 2013 Each day before work María Dolz stops at the same café. There she finds herself drawn to a couple who is also there every morning. Observing their seemingly perfect life helps her escape the listlessness of her own. But when the man is brutally murdered and María approaches the widow to offer her condolences, what began as mere observation turns into an increasingly complicated entanglement. Invited into the widow's home, she meets--and falls in love with--a man who sheds disturbing new light on the crime. As María recounts this story, we are given a murder mystery brilliantly encased in a metaphysical enquiry, a novel that grapples with questions of love and death, chance and coincidence, and above all, with the slippery essence of the truth and how it is told. This ebook edition includes a reading group guide.

Benjamin Malauss-ne, the Belleville scapegoat, and his family of half sisters and brothers are once again the target for a series of increasingly catastrophic mishaps which culminate in his imprisonment on 21 counts of murder. Meanwhile, the real serial killer remains at large. In this sprawling novel, which brings the Belleville Quintet to a close, Pennac has allowed his unique imagination to run riot. The result is an increasingly huge cast of unforgettable characters and a series of inter-related plot lines which curl around one another before finally unravelling. From the art of the tattoo to cinema history, and the intricacies of cutting-edge surgery to the wonders of the wines of Jura, there is something for everyone in this extraordinary tale.
